My man is planning the whole thing to be a surprise – including the ring – and I’m nervous about my response. Am I going to react right or am I going to be emotionally detached like I usually am when big news comes along? Hopefully all this anticipation will help!
I hear about girls screaming and flying at their man when he gets down on one knee; I hear about girls breaking down crying; I hear about girls’ hearts pumping so bad all they can do is nod and say “Yeah.” I have absolutely no idea what I will do.
How did you respond? 🙂

I got teary and said “yes”! I didn’t freak, but definitely got emotional.

I always thought that I would be so happy and shout: “YES”!!! But at the time I was still mad at him because a few days earlier he told me not to “expect anything” on our romantic Valentine’s day weekend. When he started to propose I was angry/confused that he was doing it, especially because I had told him that I wanted him to do it in a BIG way. He proposed on the bed of a hotel room, and he wrote it out, he didn’t even say it. You can tell I’m still not happy about this.
But, because I love him, I took a minute to think about it and said “Yes”. Then we went to dinner and I got a drink to digest what happened lol

I knew it was coming but he managed to completley surprise me and catch me off guard with the proposal. I got pretty emotional because I couldn’t believe it was actually happening and because he was saying the sweetest things (most of which I don’t remeber now)! I definitely teared up! Then after, I realized how he had been totally plotting with my family and had lied to me to get me at this place alone and I got “fake mad” at him and my fam for all the secret plotting behind my back! It was the best day of my life so far! I still think back to our proposal and get emotional. I had been waiting for that day for my whole entire life and it was just amazing!

I knew it was coming the whole time. But when the time came I freaked out I kept saying “no way!” and then cried. I was shocked i acted like that. lol

It’s funny, I knew that it was sort of going to come up, but I didn’t know exactly when or where or how. I was pretty stunned when I opened that cupcake box and read what was inside.
So stunned, in fact, that all I could say was OMG, and hug him, and then I forgot to say yes! He finally prompted me minutes later with a “Well?” Then I said yes. lol.

I knew mine was coming but was still surprised when he did it. I just laughed and didn’t really say anything!

I laughed and laughed and then cried and cried.
So much so that i didnt answer for awhile and he had to ask if it was a yes.
Lol i was shocked and SO SO happy. I dont think i have ever been that happy in my life. 🙂

I teared up and just clung onto him. I could barely say yes. I had no idea it was coming until that morning, when I got a little suspicious and mentally prepared myself, but had forgotten my suspicions until he actually did it so I reacted completely unscripted.

I told him it wasnt a funny joke, we had been talking about it for months. I really didnt know he was going to do it.

I was sobbing like a baby, and when he finished his little speech and actually said “Will you marry —” I said “YES!!!” and basically hug attacked him before he could even get the last word out lol.
Don’t worry about how you react – the emotions will all be there, and your SO knows you, so however you react will make sense to him 🙂

I know exactly how you feel! But when it came down to it, I cried like a little baby! Which I felt stupid about because I knew it was coming and I still cried like a baby. We went ring shopping together, been together since 2004…he even told me 2 years ago that he knew he’d propose in 2012. I even knew what day he was planning on doing it, just not exactly when. He planned a full weekend at Napa for us and there were a couple of times that I really thought he was going to do it. Surpise sunrise hot air balloon – no. Champagne brunch – nope. Then he surprised me at an olive picnic grove with mini-cheesecakes that spelt out: MARRY ME? and as soon as I saw it, I bursted into tears before I could even say yes. And even though originally I wanted something super elaborate, this was just so much better since it was completely him, working in a little bit of me as well and was so personal. So as much as I fretted about it before, when the time came, it was so overwhelming that I left all logic behind and reacted in the moment.
I’m sure you’ll react just as you were meant to =) And it’ll be an amazing day. Good luck!
